Faith, Skill, Business, & Bricks…(1 min. read)

Why do some people crumble in the face of discourgment and others rise from the ashes, bigger and better than before? What is the secret? Faith, as Steve Jobs said, and I would like to add Skill.

In business, I like to think of faith as the willingness to believe that good can come out of any situation we are faced with. One of the ways I “keep the faith” is by acquiring skills. Every unique challenge also poses a unique moment to learn something new. Sometimes, you even discover skills that you never knew you had. Faith and skill go hand in hand. Skills require faith to attain and faith requires skills to maintain.

Challenges are inevitable. Our willingness to see them as opportunities to learn and push forward, is what makes the difference. Keep the faith, learn new skills, and while life throws bricks, we will build our dreams. Mahalo.

They’re Finally Catching On…(2 min read)

What’s the point of success if you end up alone?  The true beauty of the network marketing industry is finally being recognized today thanks to the widespread understanding of collaboration. Traditionally modeled companies are seeing that it pays to work in teams, something the network marketers industry has been doing all along.

Take Avon for example.  It was founded in 1886 to help women create an independent stream of income from home. To put it in greater perspective, that was 34 years before women had the right to vote.  They proudly wave the flag “empowering women for 130 years.”

Some network marketers find loop holes, ways to mass recruit and you can make a large amount of money doing that. However, if you’d like to make an income and impact other peoples’ lives, build a team.

True network marketers know that the success of their network marketing business is directly predicated on the success of their teams.  True network marketing is personal development and service disguised as business.  Why make just an income, when you can make an income and a difference?

Time To Leave The Shore…(2 min read)

A pic and a thought to start off this week.  A little surf story because you know how I roll.  When my kids were learning how to surf, one of the very first skills I taught them was how to read the ocean.  They learned to identify currents, tides, and how to count the sets.

For any of you unfamiliar with the ocean, waves come in sets.  Sometimes a rouge wave or what we call a freak set will roll in.  For the most part, they are predictable and patterned.  Between each set is a period of calm.  That calm period is the best time to paddle out or in.  Reading the patterns keeps you safe.  Sometimes, so safe you never want to leave the shore.

In network marketing, many get caught on the shore reading the sets.  The “personal development trap,” I call it.  We’ve all been there in some way, shape, or form.  You keep studying, training, and waiting for the best time to go for it.

I say, you already know enough to get started. Start small and work your way up. By all means at least get in the water and paddle around in the shallow.  Get a feel for the current and the temperature of the water.  Learn from other people out there “killing it” in their business.

You’ve counted the sets, now lets paddle out!  Happy Monday!

A Lesson Only BROKE Can Teach…(1 min read)

broke-monopoly-guyWhen you have nothing left financially or when you’re starting from the bottom, what you DO HAVE is very obvious.  In the midst of crisis, you don’t have time to focus on what you can’t do.  If you were standing next to someone who suddenly started to suffer a massive heart attack would you:

A.  Call for help, “Does anyone know CPR?!”

B.  Call for, “Who doesn’t know CPR, so I can eventually find someone who does?!”

I’m going to assume we all would say A!  That is the core of  self-awareness: Knowing your strengths.  Tough times are the best teachers.  Get in a habit of responding to tough situations with strength.  Be a first RESPONDER not a first REACTOR.  Use the struggle as mental conditioning to develop your emotional IQ.  Wealth does not eradicate crisis.  Don’t think that when you get to the top, you’ll have the time to be “a nice guy” or a “patient person.”  Who you are in the pit is who you will be on the top.

When I say BROKE, I mean it figuratively.  It can mean out of money, out of encouragement, and so on.  At some point in our lives we all feel BROKE.  And that my friends can be the start of your self-awareness journey.  Mahalo for reading.  You know how it goes, let get connected.

Call for Back-Up!…(1 min read)

If you get knocked down, you get back up again, right?  If it were that easy, most people would do it.  I say, getting back-up makes getting back up a whole lot easier.  We live in a time where we can access any information with our fingertips from a smart phone.  People ask their FaceBook friends for parenting tips.  My daughter teachers herself math on Khan Academy.

My point is, the back-up we need is out there, we just need to search for it.  Chances are someone has been through a similar struggle as you and has talked about it on some on-line platform.  Today, it’s not about “who’s the smartest,” it’s about ” who’s the most resourceful.”  Comment below, email me your questions.  My goal is to back YOU up & bring YOU content that is relevant, that will save you time.  Aloha my friends!
